In 1963, the Danvers Historical Society purchased 11 acres in the center of the site to restore its appearance from the early 20th century. Around that time, Danvers purchased 1,665 acres of land, including barns and horse protection, for protection, conservation and entertainment, and developed a park with a waterfront promenade, community garden, gymnasium, and children’s farm. These properties form a wonderful whole, providing protection for the general public through intelligent planning and management of nonprofits and municipalities.
